Whoah! I thought that this day would never come! Granted, I’m not quite there yet but ooh, I’m kinda halfway there!
The day that I had Baz was probably the day my sense of style got shot to pieces. My body shape was different to what it was pre-baby and try as I might, I couldn’t seem to shed the weight that I gained during my pregnancy! I felt like a frumpy mummy for the longest time – all my clothes didn’t fit me anymore and everything else that I tried on just didn’t look right!
I kept telling myself I’ll figure it out once Baz is not as clingy and I get a bit more time to myself. But then Elli happened and I went down another spiral of gaining even more baby weight and realising there are even more to do with two kids and seeing that day slipping further and further away, feeling quite sure that I wasn’t ever gonna get my funk back.
So all this while, my pre-baby clothes have been sitting in the wardrobe dreaming of the day that they see light again. I couldn’t bear to give them away! Finally though, this time last year, I decided I was going to take charge and do something about it and I did.
Right now, I’m back to my pre-Elli weight and the goal is to get to my pre-Baz weight. I’ve also started making an effort to dress up in still practical but slightly more stylish than my usual casual home clothes each day. Not only that but I’ve also started doing my hair and makeup again. I have to admit, I still don’t do it everyday but when I do, it feels like I’ve had a pampering session! It’s amazing the feel-good effect it exudes from such a tiny act!
I reckon it’ll be another year before I get to my pre-Baz weight. Slow and steady does it and in that time, I can’t wait to slowly pull out each piece of my old clothes and start wearing them again!
